Motivational Monday

Posted by AJ Blythe at Monday, September 19, 2011

Read, read, read. Read everything—trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the most. Read! You'll absorb it. Then write. If it is good, you'll find out. If it's not, throw it out the window.
~ William Faulkner ~

It's annoying when you're reading junk and wondering, how on earth did this get published?

Great quote. Reading definitely helps me with my writing. Absorb is a good word, because you are not always conscious of it.

Shayne, I know! And then you try not to think about the R's in your drawer and what that must mean...

I think I do absorb, Eleni - because when I have a really good book I forget to focus on anything but the story. But if you asked me afterwrads why I liked it I would be able to tell you.
